•  "The upright tombstone of James C. Fennell is the only one dating from the territorial period still in existence outside of Maple Hill Cemetery and known to this writer. His original grave site was in what is now the Camelot subdivision in southeast Huntsville but was legally moved to the John Hobbs Cemetery, in the now Chimney Springs subdivision, in 1975. The stone exists today only because of careful preservation by Mrs. Roy Cochran, a family descendant." - Johnson
